Prosecutors Say Walker at Center of 'Criminal Scheme'

Prosecutors allege that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) "was at the center of an effort to illegally coordinate fundraising among conservative groups to help his campaign and those of Republican senators fend off recall elections during 2011 and '12," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"In the documents, prosecutors lay out what they call a 'criminal scheme' to bypass state election laws by Walker, his campaign and two top deputies -- R.J. Johnson and Deborah Jordahl."

"The governor and his close confidants helped raise money and control spending through 12 conservative groups during the recall elections... The documents include an email in which Walker tells Karl Rove...that Johnson would lead the coordination campaign."
